This automatic optical fiber tensile testing system is designed for operator skill impartial use in production and laboratory settings. Two fundamental design designs permit the user to choose from a create for standard linear proof screening and with extra mandrels for rotary high strength testing.
The linear version is made for production proof screening with forces as much as 22 N. Motor-driven clamps with very carefully developed rubber inserts ensure that the Optical Fiber Coloring Machine is not really damaged in the screening process while concurrently getting rid of the need for an external atmosphere provide. Amounts of pulling pressure, tugging velocity and hold time are programmable and easily available to the operator through the built-in LCD touch-screen control. Data from tests can be saved and accessed via the USB port or Ethernet user interface.
Mandrels the exact same design like NYFORS’ optical fiber recoaters could be attached to the proof tester within the rotary high power settings. The fiber is covered round the two mandrels which assistance it having a unique clamping mechanism. In this way greater loads can be applied on the fiber, allowing breaking up strength tests below controlled circumstances.
Adjustable clamp placement facilitates testing with all the highest force amounts as well as testing of short fiber lengths. The compact and light-weight weight design makes the tool easy to maneuver in a lab environment and to incorporate within a creation work table where room reaches a premium. The equipment is actually a lightweight and lightweight tool ideal for screening the strength of optical fibers up to 30 N. The device is created to meet all types of applications in which a power test must be performed.
The device is made with the user in your mind. The Secondary Coating Line is definitely placed in the carefully guided linear clamps, and the screening starts automatically with a “One Touch” go switch. The built-in microprocessor regulates each of the important guidelines such as pulling force, tugging speed and hold time. This allows for a completely controlled check every time.
The equipment could be connected to an external PC, which allows access to all automated guidelines and configurations. The equipment is tailored to stand-on your own use or even to the incorporation into various subsystems. The device posseses an substantial ability of logging and conserving information including tugging force, tugging velocity and fiber diameter along with other parameters.
Two recoat injector designs are available. The PTR307 utilizes a computerized water pump to inject the recoat materials. The quantity of materials dispensed from the automatic injector is managed yourself via the top-installed “Inject” switch or programmed to the machine utilizing the tablet pc control. The PTR307B features a manual recoat injection system that will require an individual to manually distribute the recoat materials into the mold cavity; a replacement injector for the PTR307B recoater is accessible listed below. Please note the automatic injector is simply compatible with higher-directory recoat materials, whilst the handbook injector works with both low- and- index recoat material; they are both sold separately below. Please contact Technology Support to learn more.
he manual injector can be installed to Cable Air Wiper through the 4-40 anchoring screws around the recoater real estate (see picture to the right). Utilize a 3/32″ hex factor to secure the injector before use. For connecting the PTRRRM to the recoater mold, tighten the connector after the green plastic material tubes, then release by way of a 1/4 choose enable rotation.
The injector is equipped with a distribution valve and 2-place choice lever for directing the flow of recoat material. A knurled dispensing attach with the inner plunger acts as a syringe for your recoat material. To fill the syringe, point the handle downwards (i.e., towards the recoat bottle), then spin the knurled dispensing screw counterclockwise until it ikrsve easily to fill the syringe (demonstrated in the photo off to the right). Then, to inject the recoat materials in to the mildew, point the handle horizontally (i.e., dealing with the knurled attach) and spin the attach clockwise till close to the finish from the travel array is reached. Steer clear of bottoming out the dispenser because this might harm the inner plunger; also be mindful when re-interesting the threads in order to avoid cross threading the dispensing screw. A number of fill/inject actions may be needed till air is displaced inside the system. Use lens cells as well as an acetone or alcohol cleaning solution to collect any excess recoat material that runs through the mildew.
